I don''t think there''s anything wrong with wanting to get into the industry now, as long as people realize the skills they''ll need to get in, nor with having the confidence that they''ll be able to get in. I doubt most people think they''ll produce a game that will be better than the top ones that are out. Those that do probably are very new and don''t realize the work that it takes to put out a top game. Those people just need a little more knowledge.

Still, after making a few attempts to do your own state of the art games, and of course, not being able to finish them, you have still learnt (or learned, yeah i read that post ) alot.

I think many people come here as gamers, thinking that making games must not be that hard, and they want to be like their heroes, so they try to write the next {INSERT POPULAR GAME}-killer. They either give up on it and disappear, or learn from it, get a clue, and realize that getting to that point is going to take some work, so they either make it a hobby or make a comittment.

... Or they lie about their abilities and try to use vaporware to "impress" everyone.
